My big "dilemma" this week is this "blind date" I have tomorrow. My DAD set it up. He calls me when I'm taking a walk with my cousin, and says "Hey, I bought tickets for the Phillies. You're going with this 21-year-old I work with. He's handsome and has great work ethic." WHAT!?!?!?!? I didn't ask you to play match-maker! WHY!?!?! Of course, all you sentimentalists (like me....normally) will say "aww, but he's only being a parent! He cares for you." That well may be, but I DON'T WANT THIS. I bet if you told almost any other parent you're not interested, they'll back out of the deal. NO. HE DOESN'T. He even bought the Phillies tickets BEFORE telling me. He even told that kid before me. What the hell. We don't have too good of a relationship to start with, now he's only making it worse.
This kid seems really nice, like a quality guy and all. I just CAN'T STAND the awkwardness of a blind date. I took a blind date to the junior prom, and it was the frickin most awkward night of my life. I don't want this. Not again.
The past few days have been like this" me complaining like the world is ending. Today, I've been really chill about it. Hey, there's no way of backing out of it, might as well not worry. What can I do? This kid is obviously not a bad person, and we're just going out to watch a baseball game (did I mention that I HATE watching sports? I'm, unfortunately, pretty damn impatient). I hope I don't sound like a brat. You'd have to know the emotional abuse this man puts on our entire family. I won't leave the house if that means passing him. It's terribly unfortunate....And I feel horrible about it, but he does this to himself. Well, this sucks.
On a lighter note, I am currently majoring in Art History, because my London preview trip was (almost) a success (I didn't see ABBEY ROAD O_O). My group went to the Victoria & Albert Museum, and I absolutely LOVED it. Hence, my major. I feel like this is temporary. Who knows. I'm trying not to worry about it. I worry all the time. I just need to relax -_-
Oh yea, I'm planning on going to London for Spring semester :)
